Re: LSL Interview with Dean Z! + her thoughts on GRE

(1) Dumb question, but how do I view articles on the main page? Is there a page where all the articles and outline banks are displayed? (2) Really cool to read Dean Z's candid responses on the GRE. I've been writing a GRE guide and have been making similar statements over the past few months with r...

Re: Law School Admissions AMA with Spivey Consulting Group

HI Spivey Team, First, thanks for doing this. Here's a question less about admission advice, and more seeking advice as to what we, as a community, should be doing, based on your team's connections and experience: It seems (to me) that law school admissions have long been held hostage by US News Ran...

245 million is sort of a lot, but probably win win to have this over.

Re: The QE and Selendy/Gay divorce is messy and I love it

Can this thread be pro that email and the other thread be against it? my take: it's easy to get wrapped up in the tone of the email or to choke on 100MM and to lose sight of what's happened here. some of the biggest names in the business and securities lit side at QE jumped, as well as the trial la...

Re: NY to 190??!!!

given the Trump tax changes they really should up associate comp. they're getting raises and we are getting hosed. a tax partner at a CLE said that "well, on balance associates will likely be the same or slightly better off with these changes" so IDK if they see it this way a lot of time was spent ...

Re: Columbia Students Taking Questions

What kind of infrastructure is there for people interested in litigation? There aren't really any upper-level writing classes, which is disappointing. Obviously, you have seminars where you write papers, but that's not the same thing. We could really use an appellate advocacy course or two (we have...

Re: How to learn how to do well on a law school exam

Because I worry good advice is sometimes lost to the sands of time, everyone should read TSL's posts about law school success. My first term in law school, I was wary of this kind of advice and definitely followed the crowd in terms of how to prepare for law school exams. I did OK. The next term I f...
